I know that I haven’t written in a long time. I guess that I have been busy and yet I feel like I have nothing much to write about. Tatum had his baby blessing the first of this month so afterwards we had a lot of people of here to celebrate. It was a lot of fun but very busy and I have to say that I am still recovering.
We had a great weekend. Cody was off work Friday thru Monday so it was a nice and long weekend. On Friday we went with Cody’s family to lunch and then we went to the Draper temple. It was beautiful! It was so awesome to get to go into the celestial room with me, Cody, and Tatum. He slept through the whole thing but I wish he could have been awake because he would have loved the chandelier. He loves to look at lights and Emily’s living room ceiling light is his best friend. He loves to look at it and smile and try to laugh. He is getting more and more fun. He likes to sit in his bouncer and try to figure out his hands to try to get to the toys. He is very awake in the morning (much to my and Cody’s dismay) and is all smiles when he first wakes up. He wakes up at 7 to 8 but with the time change he wakes up between 7 and 8. You would think that he would change to 8 to 9 but no he has already figured out the time change. We got him a bumbo and he likes to sit in it. I will have to get a picture of him sitting in it. He doesn’t sit in it for long periods of time. He is getting a lot stronger too and a lot of work. I have finally been figuring Tatum out. He goes to sleep really good at night but during the day he has to fall asleep with me holding him then I can put him down and get things done. He was getting up 2 times a night and then I read What to Expect the First Year and it said that by 3 months he should be only waking up 1 time a night. The book suggests letting you baby cry for up to 30 min and then try to comfort without feeding and it that doesn’t work feed but smaller amounts. So the first night we tried this he cried for 10 min and then went back to sleep and from then on he has only been waking up 1 time a night. It has been really nice plus with Cody’s help there are nights when I don’t have to get up at all except in the morning cause Cody does not get up well in the morning.
Well Tatum is wake again and so he thinks he is hungry so I must go!
